Cyclone hits Madagascar
A deadly, Category 4 cyclone hit the northeast coast of Madagascar on March 7, 2017, causing extensive damage. Cyclone Enawo, with winds gusting to 300km/h, killed more than 80 and affected close to 45,000 people. The disbursement of CHAF funding allows for essential support to be on the ground immediately while CARE seeks additional funds to support communities further and transition to the medium-term recovery phase.
The heavy rains and winds caused extensive damage along the cyclone’s path and surrounding area, destroying more than 40,000 homes and leaving thousands homeless. Livelihoods have been affected and local infrastructure was damaged.
